Eric Bana circling ‘Lone Survivor’

Thesp in talks to join case of Peter Berg-helmed SEAL drama

Eric Bana is in negotiations to round out the cast of Pete Berg’s next pic, “Lone Survivor.”

Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Ben Foster are already set to star, with plans to shoot the movie this fall.

Emmett/Furla is financing the film alongside Norton Herrick, with Universal Pictures distributing.

An adaptation of the book by Marcus Luttrell, “Lone Survivor” tells the harrowing story of how Luttrell and his Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission in the Hindu Kush mountain region, where the team had deployed to kill a terrorist leader.

Berg and Sarah Aubrey will produce through their Film 44 banner along with Randal Emmett, George Furla, Akiva Goldsman and Barry Spikings.

Bana, repped by WME and Robert Offer, just finished shooting the untitled John Crowley thriller and can be seen next in “Deadfall” with Olivia Wilde.
